Bad Twinkie, and the food stamp people.

Now we know the real reason our beloved Twinkies won't be around with us anymore.

"Hostess pensions funds were redirected and put towards other company operations [see executives pay] as the business fell towards bankruptcy, it has been revealed. Hostess Brands Inc. executives allegedly were supposed to apply designated funds towards employee pensions, but injected the money into the company instead.

It is unclear how much money is missing from the pension plans or how many employees are affected, according to Yahoo Finance, which has reported that in August 2011 the company said it would stop making pension contributions altogether.

Hostess shut down just last month following a strike by one of the unions representing employees working at the company.

Hostess's chief executive officer, Gregory Rayburn, has said in an interview that he thought it was "terrible" that employee money meant to go towards their pensions were not used for their intended purpose.

He has said, "I think it's like a lot of things in this case. It's not a good situation to have." [Source]

Gee, ya think? You can always count on "the man" to screw the little guy.

Finally, the next one of those red state wingnuts try to tell you about all those urban folks sucking up freebies from the government, remind them about the following story:

"Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County, Colorado."  [Source]

Of course republicans are claiming that this is the case because they (republicans) can't find jobs under Obama and they are now forced to depend on the government for something as basic as food. (It looks like that 47% is growing.)

This, of course, is not true. Poor white people in America have always voted against their own best interest. This is because they feel that they are somehow connected to those who are wealthy and influential by race, religion, or gender. Besides, it's so much easier to blame those other people for your station in life than to actually look in the mirror and see what a f&*^ up you are.  Here is the thing, it doesn't matter who is in power in Washington. What goes on in D.C. isn't going to affect your live in Eubank, Kentucky. You were using food stamps when George Bush was president, you are using them now that the Kenyan Socialist is in power, and you will be using them when the next president (be they republican or Democrat) takes office.

Field, this sounds exactly the way us Negroes feel about Obama, even though he told us to get lost early in his first term. We still voted against our best interest this time. I mean, 96% of the black vote went to Obama. Is that crazy or what?

Pilot X said , " I have to fight the war against Christmas! This time our side is gonna win!" Why the war on Christmas Mr.X ? I know you put God on the same level as Santa Claus and the Easter bunny but declaring war on the Christians, really dude. I may not be a devout Christian, and I don't know if Christ was the son of God, but I do believe his teachings are a good guideline for human morality. I would think you would at least appreciate the good teachings of history's greatest man of color. What about Ramadan, Yom Kippur, MLK Jr.s birthday, you got a problem with any of those ? Oh hold on dude I got it its you and Jamie Foxx , worshipping your lord and saviour, Barack Huss ein Obama right ? Well least you believe in something dude, I can at least appreciate your faithfulness. Hope you're right dog, if not I'll see ya in Hell. Maybe we can be roomies.

Hey the twinkies fiasco happens in the corporate world. It's the price we sometimes pay as capitalists. Pensions sometimes get lost or spent when they shouldn't have.

BTW, I am not sure but I heard Hostess is run by Leftists and Progressives. Twinkies sounds like it could be a Leftist name.

Field, I used to think liberals were liars. I said no way they can all be this stupid and not understand basic math, reality and the readily available evidence.

Drive by any courthouse in any city, drive past any welfare office in any city. Who do you see?

You know very well that applying demographics - you know total population Blacks are 24% of foodstamp recipients while whites are 7% Even having 6 times as many people as Blacks. Now illegal aliens are taking even that away from you, they have a larger population and take more welfare, you are getting kicked to the curb having "voted for your interests"

Blacks also lead the world in robberies, murder, theft, violent crimes, STD, Aids, Dropout, Illiteracy rates, Poverty levels, College failure rate and drop out percentages and so much more.

Get real, no one is stupid enough to believe this bullshit, we all know who the party is that votes against their interest. You have been enslaved and you like it. You like being dumb and lazy and waiting for some limousine liberal to tell you it isn't your fault, don't worry we will get someone else to support you.

Sad and shameful life.

Mr.X of course there are poor white people in this country , and poor black people, and poor people of every Race, creed, and religion. Do you really think black people are blah or is that just your opinion of yourself? ( I might tend to agree with you if that's the case.) Your attempt at sarcasm is as sharp as your intellect ol dog. Your racism is world class though chum.

Field, this post is a little misleading isn't it,or did you just cut and paste bloomberg without checking statistics? King co Texas, a republican stronghold with a whopping county wide population of 286 people. That's right 286 people total . If 100% of the county were on assistance it would be less than one city block worth of assistance in ,oh say Philadelphia maybe. Philadelphia co. with a population of 1,536,471 people has 473,037 people on foodstamps , now known as SNAP , or 31% of the population . Douglas co Colorado which you mentioned has a population of 292,167 people with m4,000 of them on foodstamps. I'm not sure what that percentage is but I'll stick my neck out and guess its not approaching 31%. There may be millions ,hell billions of republicans on foodstamps for all I know or give a damn. Let em all be white if ya want, but listing those two counties as some kinda proof was a little on the ignorant side.

This is so depressing. I knew we were in bad shape but I had no idea just how bad off we were. Brother Field, please do a post on our terrible situation. We must wake up if it's not too late.

FN should be glad anon 9:24p is spending time with us to help us. God bless you, Anon. You are one of the few good white souls known to man.

Field, you should do a post on our condition and the exceptional white anon who has been trying to help us, relentlessly. Happy Holidays, Anon9:24p....I hope Santa will be good to you.

http://mije.org/richardprince/fired-over-facebook-posting#Rhonda%20Lee

On Oct. 1, a viewer identified as Emmitt Vascocu wrote, "the black lady that does the news is a very nice lady.the only thing is she needs to wear a wig or grow some more hair. im not sure if she is a cancer patient. but still its not something myself that i think looks good on tv. what about letting someone a male have waist long hair do the news.what about that (cq)."

Lee replied the same day, "Hello Emmitt--I am the 'black lady' to which you are referring. I'm sorry you don't like my ethnic hair. And no I don't have cancer. I'm a non-smoking, 5'3, 121 lbs, 25 mile a week running, 37.5 year old woman, and I'm in perfectly healthy physical condition.

"I am very proud of my African-American ancestry which includes my hair. For your edification: traditionally our hair doesn't grow downward. It grows upward. Many Black women use strong straightening agents in order to achieve a more European grade of hair and that is their choice. However in my case I don't find it necessary. I'm very proud of who I am and the standard of beauty I display. Women come in all shapes, sizes, nationalities, and levels of beauty. Showing little girls that being comfortable in the skin and HAIR God gave me is my contribution to society. Little girls (and boys for that matter) need to see that what you look like isn't a reason to not achieve their goals.

"Conforming to one standard isn't what being American is about and I hope you can embrace that.

"Thank you for your comment and have a great weekend and thank for watching."

Vascocu replied that Lee was right to be proud of who she is and that he is not a racist, but ". . . this world has . . . certain standerd (cq). if youve come from a world of being poor are you going to dress in rags?. . ."

Just so you know Pilot, white people take 69% of government hand-outs despite the fact that they constitute just 64% of the population.

Oh, the irony..... poor white people are screw-ups, all the while you champion a percieved victimization of another group, and rarely (if ever) make a call for their personal responsibility.

What a joke.....

Field, I must say the Anonymous comments with their fictional statistics are always good for a laugh. The bigots must get their numbers from Faux News. According to the USDA, in 2010 over 33% of the people enrolled in SNAP (food stamps) were white, not the single digit 6% claimed by Anonymous.

Guess when these words of wisdom were written:

“Do not blame Obama, blame the people of America who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be America’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.”

Hint: “Obama” and “America” should actually read “Caesar” and “Rome.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero was the author. He died in 43 BC. We all know how things turned out for Rome, yet some haven’t learned a thing from the lesson.

Field you are right about poor white people totally identifying with those self-same interests that are oppressing them and taking food out of the mouths of their children. This "divide and conquer" tactic was used extensively in the American colonies long before this nation was born.

The English wealthy royals living here in the American colony recognized that it was important to keep all people, who comprised the poor enslaved masses, divided as a means of increasing the security of the rich.

Many poor white peoploe were brought to these shores from England, Ireland, and Scotland under peonage contracts, as indebted servants whose contractual obligation could only be satisfied by their continuous service to the named English master for the number of years specified in the contract. Many white English families were able to escape from the infamous debtor's "Work Houses" in England by signing their children over into years of servitude (slavery)to some master living in the American colonies.

Many of these white indentured servants soon found common ground with the African slaves in the colonies. In fact for several years the colonial laws governing the legal status between a Master and his indentured servant/slave were exactly the same as applied to the African slave. Even the fact that the indentured slave's period of service was limited to that specified in a written contract; whereas the African slave's period of service was for a lifetime was not noted in colonial law. It was only when the English colonial royals discovered that these two groups of slaves were forming their own separate class together that the royals became alarmed and introduced special laws pertaining exclusively to the African slaves.

First and foremost these laws prohibited association between whites and Africans (Negroes) strictly on the basis of color alone and this included prohibition against intermarrage between Africans and ANY OTHER racial group including indians. In addition to enactment of these new laws the English royals engaged in a strong relentless propaganda campaign to convince their white indentured slaves that although they were highly inferior to their English masters; they (the white indentured slaves) were still greatly superior to the African slaves residing in the same society.

So it is little wonder that over the past three centuries the effect of these white and black slavery laws along with the widespread proliferation of unrelenting virulent racist propaganda has continued to shape the attitude of poor white Americans; making them unconditionally willing to believe anything the neo-royalists (read: conservatives) tell them.

Nan, please tell us you aren't one of those teachers who can not read or do math and do not understand
what demographics and total population versus the number of total claims mean.

Well, that was a redundant question, obviously you do not.

33% of the claims for Snap program were made by Whites, and if 33 or 34% of the claims made of Snap were Black and the Black population is 12.9% and White is 64% what does that tell you Nan?

There are 223,553,265 Whites in this country (counting those who say they are White-hispanic) and 38,929,319 Blacks.

So even with small numbers of population Blacks collect more than any other race in the country, a whopping amount.
7% and 24% understand now? It's 7% for Whites Nan not as you could not understand and misread that there are 6 times more White people than Blacks as you misquoted.

Maybe you should stop using the retarded liberal talking point about getting facts from FOX news and learn to think and do math for yourself so you don't have to rely on any News to tell you what to think.

Putin rejects foreign advice on democracy


MOSCOW (AP) -- President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday angrily rejected what he described as attempts to enforce foreign patterns of democracy on Russia and vowed to preserve the nation's identity against interference from abroad.Moscow' task on the global stage will be to preserve its "national and spiritual identity," Putin said, adding that a strong military should "guarantee Russia's independence and security."

Anonymous, I'm fine with math; the original comment talked about the number of people enrolled in SNAP and not the overall population of the country. USDA gives raw numbers to go along with the percentages, and whites definitely outnumber African-Americans receiving benefits. The fact that a higher percentage of the total population of African-Americans are poor than the percentage of whites who are does not negate the fact that there are more white SNAP recipients than black. Could it be the fact there are actually poor white people on the dole embarrasses you or threatens your delusions of white supremacy?
